Reunion with Death - Review
Reunion with Death by Sheila Connolly
Rating: 3 Stars
Description: Laura Shumway was excited to go on a 40th college reunion trip with 40 of her college classmates in Italy. She was looking forward to doing something for herself, seeing the sights of Italy that she had studied as an Art History major and reconnecting with old classmates. A dead former professor really didn't play a role in her vision. Especially when it turned out that the dead former professor had a very sleazy past and may have been helped to his death.
My Impression: Connolly is one of my absolute favorite mystery authors. I love both her orchard and museum series and read them as soon as I get them. This book didn't really live up to her other books. The pacing of the book didn't really keep me turning pages. The ending itself while it explained what happened wasn't particularly satisfying. Also, with 40+ characters it was hard to keep everyone straight and really understand their motives. On the plus side, I did like Laura and Cynthia and the way the handled the investigation did make sense. I always hate when people who have no business asking questions go running around being extremely nosy and nobody really seems to blink.
Would I Read More of this Series/Author?: I might recommend the series but I would definitely recommend the author.
Would I Recommend this Book?: Not at full price but definitely if available on a Daily Deal or through the library.
*I received the book through NetGalley for review purposes.
